Why You Need to Hire a Licensed and Insured Sandblasting Contractor

by Mark Hawkins on Jul 11, 2018

Trusting sandblasting to a licensed & insured contractor is another way of saying that you will be relying on a measure twice, cut once type of pro. That's vital even for general contracting let alone for sandblasting services that entail high-risks. This reason alone explains why finding an insured and licensed sandblasting contractor will be the make-or-break parameter that will influence your decision.

Why should your sandblasting contractor be licensed?

The short answer is that a licensed sandblasting contractor will have you fully covered. The long version of the importance of hiring a licensed pro is multileveled. First of all, a contractor with licenses to sandblast provides you with proof of his expertise. In other words, you are sure the sandblaster has undergone training and is permitted to do the job. But it's not only about competence and skills. Although skills are vital for any contracting job, license is an assurance that sandblasting done in your industry or commercial property meets the local LA codes and policies. And so you will never have troubles with the law or need to pay for additional services. The license of the contractor assures his liability for the service offered.

What do insured sandblasting contractors ensure?

The contractor's liability is directly associated with his insurance. Insured sandblasting contractors are liable for the work done on your property. Should there is an accident or anything goes wrong during the service, nobody will hold you liable. The insurance of the contractor won't only cover his potential accident but any damage done to your property.

Why insurance and licenses are important for sandblasting services? 

Sandblasting is a hard job and entails dangers. Why? Because projecting abrasive particles onto a steel, concrete, wood, or another surface with force is one of the most hazardous jobs. The silica released into the air can cause serious environmental issues and respiratory diseases. And therefore, the sandblasters must wear special gear and make sure their helmet protects them at all times. Since some sandblasting jobs take place in confined spaces, poor ventilation will make matters worse.

When the contractors are licensed and insured, you are not liable for any accidents due to misuse or damage of equipment. Apart from that, professional contractors will not only do their job correctly and thus provide you with the results you expected from the service but won't allow your workers to return to their work until the air is cleared from the contaminants.

Unlicensed & uninsured sandblasting pros end up costing you more

Both health hazards and environmental concerns are critical considerations. In fact, in the LA area of California sandblasting contractors must have proof of their insurance for both liability and property damage. They must also provide proof of license for their specialty in sandblasting. So don't choose unlicensed pros that cannot show you proof of their expertise and insurance. They might be cheaper but if anything goes wrong, you get to pay and be responsible for accidents. And such costs are higher.

So, the answer is yes. Hire a licensed and insured contractor to have peace of mind. If you choose a sandblasting company that works with sub-contractors, you should still ask for proof that the pros working on your site are insured and licensed. This will put your mind at complete ease.
